ABOUT

An Elegant Spring Wedding at the Inn at Warner Hall Ashley + Wythe | Gloucester, VA

Weddings

Ashley and Wythe met the “old fashioned” way – they immediately hit it off over drinks at a bar. Their love is a quiet, gentle love…and Wythe proposed during one of their favorite weekly traditions: making a homemade meal together. This particular night, they were cooking “comfort food” – and they now lovingly refer to that recipe as “engagement burgers”! Haha – so sweet! I first met these two at their Williamsburg engagement session. Their sweet personalities and classic style kept me SO excited for their wedding day!
We knew going into this day that it was going to be HOT with a high of 96 degrees. But, you can’t tell in a SINGLE photo…these two didn’t even let is phase them! All of their guests traveled to The Inn at Warner Hall in Gloucester, and enjoyed the outdoor reception without a second guess. Everyone had an incredible time, despite the heat, and it was a GORGEOUS day.
This blog post has quickly become a new favorite. With stunning florals, adorable magnolia and oyster details, a gorgeous bridal party and a venue that is to-die-for…I can’t wait for you to see this!
Enjoy some of my favorites from your beautiful day, Ashley and Wythe!  I feel so lucky to have been your photographer.
